International News from the University of Nebraska at Omaha

The University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) welcomed more than 1,000 international students from 101 countries last year. UNO is committed to international education and students. Here is one of the ways we serve them.

New International Student Scholarships

UNO demonstrates its commitment to international education by awarding scholarships to academically talented students from around the world. These scholarships range from $2500 to $7700 per academic year, and are available to both undergraduate and graduate students who maintain a 3.0 GPA and fulfill a volunteer service requirement.

Applications are accepted on a rolling (continuous) basis. Recipients are chosen on the basis of their academic achievement, leadership potential, extracurricular involvement, and the quality of their scholarship application.

* Non-Resident Tuition Scholarships enable international students to pay the same tuition as a resident of Nebraska. They are worth $6400 to $7700 per year, and are automatically renewed each year until the student graduates.

* New International Student Scholarships are worth $5000 per academic year. Partial grants are sometimes awarded for a single semester. These scholarships are not renewable.

In addition, several academic units offer their own scholarships and graduate assistantships. More than 10 percent of UNO's international students receive scholarships or assistantships from either International Programs or academic departments.

Institute for Advanced Study's School of Social Science in Princeton, New Jersey

Each year the Institute for Advanced Study's School of Social Science in Princeton, New Jersey, invites fifteen to twenty scholars to spend an academic year in residence as Visiting Members, pursuing their own research.

A completed doctorate or equivalent is required of all applicants;

memberships are awarded at both the junior and senior levels.

Member awards are funded by the Institute for Advanced Study and other sources, including the National endowment for the Humanities.

The theme for 2006-07 is The "Third World" Now.

Please note that applications that do not fall within the parameters of the theme for 2006-2007 will also receive full consideration

THE SCHOOL OF SOCIAL SCIENCE each year invites as Members some fifteen to twenty scholars from a large applicant pool. The group is interdisciplinary and international. A completed doctorate or equivalent is required of all applicants; memberships are awarded at both the junior and senior levels.

Visiting Members are expected to pursue their own research, but the School organizes a seminar on the yearТs focus and a weekly lunch at which Members as well as invited guest present their on-going work. The School is not wedded to any particular intellectual or disciplinary approach. It welcomes applications in economics, political science, law, psychology, sociology, and anthropology. It encourages social scientific work with an historical and humanistic bent and also entertains applications in history, philosophy, literary criticism, literature, and linguistics. Member awards are funded by the Institute for Advanced Study or by other sources, including the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

The theme for 2006-07 is The УThird WorldФ Now. The last sixty years have seen a dramatic change in the shape of the world. Colonial empires have dissolved either violently or peacefully and a new international system has taken shape. From the original 42 members of the League of Nations, the United Nations has grown to 191. In many states founded by charismatic spokesmen for national liberation there are now a second generation of more managerial types. And there is a different, volatile configuration of alliances and antagonisms among them. There have been many studies over the years of such matters as the modernization and development of emerging economies postcolonial culture and politics, ethnic rivalries within and among nations, and post-Cold War realignments. Most such studies have been conducted within the context of Уglobalization,Ф and have used categories of analysis that, in the light of recent history, appear dated and inadequate to the task. What is lacking, and what we are hoping to provide, is a map of structure, and form. Such a map requires not only empirical work (from historians, ethnographers, political economists, geographers, sociologists), but new and revised categories of analysis that will illuminate the patterns that have emerged. We want to bring together a group of scholars from all over the world whose individual work (substantive and focused as well as theoretical) will contribute to the drawing of this map and who collectively will articulate the analytic categories that can make sense of the Уthird worldФ as it is now.

Please note that applications that do not fall within the parameters of the theme for 2006-2007 will also receive full consideration.
